Drawing on the road.

My plants were weeping when I arrived at my studio today. Four 90+ degree days called for more watering. I unloaded some supplies and drawings I had scanned last week. Then I began to get my road kit together.

I have a pretty serious kit for drawing in small sketchbooks along the beach or in the public places. I carry small Moleskines or spiral sketchbooks; they are best for unexpected bouts with nature. I can control them in the wind or cover them up from the rain. I have aqueous colored pencils, a squirt bottle, and  plastic Japanese brushes that have water wells built in.

I had to stop into Artist & Craftsman Supplies on Market Street. I needed some new permanent fine line ink pens that I can wash water over.

I've shot a few images here of my kit. And I'll get a few pics in action on the road tomorrow.

Ocean and sand here I come!
